Description

All new to Ghost Hunt UK. Bringing you a brand new location for 2022 and wow what a location this will be.

History

At the beginning of the Great war what was then known as the Isle of Thanet had built a landstrip for aircraft. The location for this was at St Mildreds Bay at Westgate which sat on top of the chalk Cliff. However through the years this saw several  unfortunate accidents. One in particular stands out with one of the aircraft failing to stop before the end of the cliff and tumbled into the sea.

So where did it it all begin for  Manston airport. In between 1915 to 1916 aircraft began to use farmland in  Manston this was for all emergency landings. It then had evolved and then came along Admiralty Aerodrome at Manston followed by a training school. The location of  Manston was a perfect location.

By 1917 the royal Flying Corps were well established and helping to take part in its defense of England. Had it not been for the  presence of  Manston the bombing raids would have been more effective.

The German raids lasted unfortunately over 13 weeks in total of the 15 bombers that were sent out 5 it is understood that did not reach the Kent Coast. Due to the brave intervention from Manston based fighters  they prevented those flying west with over 3 being destroyed outright. The RAF was formed on the 1st April 1918.

In world war 2 during the battle of Britain  Manston became heavily bombed with the airfield buildings being destroyed. What stories this special location holds.

Paranormal History

A MoD fireman was on kitchen duty in the early hours of the morning when he spotted a semi-translucent figure wearing a flying helmet, Irvin jacket and Mae West. The witness quickly left the area and was later told that others had seen the entity. It was generally thought the ghost to be a pilot who crashed into a snow drift during the Second World War.

There also said to have been seen a young airman it has been said he has been seen walking through the huts and walking through rooms and disapear. A young Cadet reports aloud bash on the fire door and they went to investigate and no one was there.

What will you uncover? Are you brave enough to venture into RAF Manston Museum.
